Happy holidays from all of us here at WD. Here’s to hoping your own holidays, no matter what they are or where they may take you, are safe, filled with writing and the occasional mulled wine, and as elusively stress-free as they come.
Today we randomly stumbled across a cache of Christmas quotes from writers. Here are a few of our favorites. Got any good holiday quotes from writers? If so, post them in the Comments below, and when the WD staff is back from a short break, I’ll randomly choose one commenter to win a stack of books we have on hand (new novels, writing books, and so on).
Here’s to spending time with our families and our works-in-progress—
“Do give books—religious or otherwise—for Christmas. They’re never fattening, seldom sinful, and permanently personal.”
“A lovely thing about Christmas is that it’s compulsory, like a thunderstorm, and we all go through it together.”
“There’s nothing sadder in this world than to awake Christmas morning and not be a child.”
“In the old days, it was not called the Holiday Season; the Christians called it ‘Christmas’ and went to church; the Jews called it ‘Hanukkah’ and went to synagogue; the atheists went to parties and drank. People passing each other on the street would say ‘Merry Christmas!’ or ‘Happy Hanukkah!’ or (to the atheists) ‘Look out for the wall!”
“This is the message of Christmas: We are never alone.”
“What I don’t like about office Christmas parties is looking for a job the next day.”
—Phyllis Diller (yeah, yeah, not a writer, but still.)
